I admit I'm a read movie buff especially horror movies. I can say I have not been happy with the crap that has been coming out of Hollywood the last few years but, this one was pretty good. It had my heart going(which is rare for me) and the special effect weren't over the top. The cons were, I thought the last few moments were a little too cliche. Directors still don't know how to end a movie. All in all it makes my list of must sees.

Gore galore, terrifying imagery, and oh so much blood!! The last 10 minutes will have your @$$ eating your theater chair, right after you've crapped your pants from everything else. Not many remakes do it for me, but this one delivers more than I could've ever expected. The actors were perfect for their roles and the directing and production were top-notch. There is absolutely nothing "feel-good" or warm & happy about this Evil Dead. It's dark, gloomy, and gut-wrenching from the get go. I probably would NOT take children under 13 and only those above 13 that can handle massive amounts of gore and blood and literally the most horrific, demonic-possession-themed images ever crafted by an obviously superb special effects team. Not for the faint at heart or fragile-minded individuals.

None of the same right notes that it's predecessor(s) struck to make it a cult classic, Fede Alvarez still manages to present a fine homage. Along with some great looks from Aaron Morton, Robert Gillies production design and the Makeup Department, this reboot delivers where Raimi wanted to in the very first.
Staying well clear of "remake", it's a rare reboot worth the money.

May be I was expecting more from watching the trailer, I thought this movie would be very scary, but it turned out a little on the stupid side. The whole movie mainly revolved around 5 people in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. So I can assume it's pretty low budget too. I don't hate the movie, but this is definitely not the kind of movie that I want to see it again.

I'm not good with reviews but I will say this movie was very good. It was very good and crazy but a very good remake of the original. Loved every moment of it.
